For those of you who think this only happens in the Movies - we stopped at a local restaurant to have dinner and one of the restaurant staff came over and asked Reid to sing for the patrons. Naturally he knocked it out of the ballpark. 

Very Exciting News! Reid has been invited to be a photo subject in renowned photographer, William Langmore's photos of autism project. The photos will be used in an art exhibit as well as a published book. We will be traveling to San Antonio in April for his photo shoot. What a fantastic opportunity for our guy!

Left to right: Reid preparing to sing the National Anthem for the Auburn University Volleyball game at the Auburn Arena. After the game, Auburn Volleyball headcoach Rick Nold came over to thank Reid for coming out to sing the Anthem. Outside Hitter Brenna Mcilroy (#8) also came over to meet Reid and thank him for his performance. Shout out to Jake Horn and all the the classy folks at Auburn who made this performance possible.

They say all work and no play makes you dull and boring. No chance of that with Reid. When Reid isn't rockin' the stage, traveling to gigs,  going to rehearsals, or doing community service, he's making holes-in-one at the local miniature Golf Course and loving it!

Autism Sings has developed an Autism Awareness program and it is especially designed for schools and students. The program includes  Jo Soria, RN, discussing autism and how it may relate to students, discussing how we can learn to reach out to those who may have various differences,  encouraging students to try new experiences that will help broaden their horizons, and encouraging students to work hard to overcome obstacles.  Included in the program were Reid singing a few relevant songs, and interaction with the students as they sang and danced along  with him. Our multimedia presentation includes PowerPoint slides of Reid overcoming his own obstacles and a short video clip of Reid singing and dancing with the Fred Astaire Studio dancers at the Mattie Kelly Arts Theater. Last school year, the Okaloosa School District Title I Office invited Autism Sings to present our program to four schools and invited us back for the current school year (2017-2018).   Like the previous presentations, this year's program has met with rave reviews from students and teachers.  The goal of our program is to reach a young generation about autism, acceptance, and working hard to realize their dreams. Contact us if you would like to discuss the 45-60 minute program for your school, camp, or event.

Reid danced a meringue number at the Fred Astaire "Dance Fantasy" with (left to right) fellow dancers Kimalee and Natalie. The trio was fantastic as always. Dancing with the Stars great , Tony Dovolani served as a guest judge. Friend and former dance partner Alex was back in town and joined them at the after production party. It was a great event that included great dancing and great  fun.

For recording artist, actor, and performer Reid Soria, Autism Sings is the culmination of years spent overcoming the odds.  Diagnosed with autism at the age of 3, Reid was never expected to be able to communicate or connect with the world around him.  Now 33, Reid has channeled his talents and sheer grit into an unprecedented story of hope.  And in finding his own voice, Reid has found a new voice for autism and is communicating and connecting beyond what was once considered possible.  Follow the story and become a part of the dream.        When words fail, Autism Sings!
